Security of the One Who Trusts in the Lord.
1He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust!”
3For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper
And from the deadly pestilence.
4He will cover you with His pinions,
And under His wings you may seek refuge;
His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.
5You will not be afraid of the terror by night,
Or of the arrow that flies by day;
6Of the pestilence that #Or walksstalks in darkness,
Or of the destruction that lays waste at noon.
7A thousand may fall at your side
And ten thousand at your right hand,
But it shall not approach you.
8You will only look on with your eyes
And see the recompense of the wicked.
9 # Or For You O Lord are my Refuge; You have made the Most High your dwelling place For you have made the Lord, my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place.
10No evil will befall you,
Nor will any plague come near your #Or dwellingtent.
11For He will give His angels charge concerning you,
To guard you in all your ways.
12They will bear you up in their hands,
That you do not strike your foot against a stone.
13You will tread upon the lion and cobra,
The young lion and the #Or dragonserpent you will trample down.
14“Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.
15“He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in #Or distresstrouble;
I will rescue him and honor him.
16“With #Lit length of daysa long life I will satisfy him
And #Or cause him to feast his eyes onlet him see My salvation.”
